11th of August at Le Meridian, New Delhi
Gita is stated by the learned to be a religious classic, a philosophical treatise and a compilation of various ideas of practical wisdom. It describes graphically the truth behind existence, ultimate purpose of life ; and various means of achieving materialistic success and spiritual fulfilment. The author, in this book, has translated all Gita shlokas in a simple, straight forward and easy to understand language ; without compromising, in any manner, with the exact meaning of these couplets. Simtaneous presentation of each shloka in Hindi and English further helps the reader in better appreciation of the real intent of the shlokas. Difficult words and ideas have been explained by putting short elaborations within brackets, in the shlokas themselves, in order to make further commentary or explanation of individual shlokas or the text as a whole, unnecessary. Placing of only two shlokas (simultaneous Hindi and English translation) on one page and also putting excellent photographs, mostly based on nature, at appropriate places makes the book an easy read.

' While this book through its vibrant photographs and exhilarating encounters in an outstanding journey along the river, it is also a humble invitation to the people of India to care for and protect this divine legacy' ... Amitabh Bachchan. This book is the result of three years of extensive travel along the 2510 kms. long river - right from the Gangotri glacier (the source of the river) down to the Ganga Sagar, where it merges into the Bay of Bengal. Its uniqueness lies in its approach to the subject. It does not focus only on the popular destinations such as Rishikesh, Haridwar and Varanasi. Instead, more than 300 pictures portray the daily life of millions of people living around this river, as it grows from gentle streams, flows through the planes of north India and is consumed through the vast delta of the Sunderbans. ' The book presents an interesting combination of mythology, art, culture, spirituality and history related to the mighty river' ... The Indian Express.

Hinduism - From Maya to Moksha
First published by Vision India Publications in 2013
Released by Lord Swaraj Paul in the House of Commons at London in the month of April, 2013.
This book is no ordinary work on Hinduism. It, in fact, is an academic study, done in a dispassionate and comprehensive manner, of an inclusive way of life, which has evolved along-with the evolution of mankind. It brings, to the doorstep of a common reader, travails of the history, creative genius behind mythology, essence of philosophy, various means of spiritual attainment ; and utility or otherwise of practices of this most misunderstood and maligned religion. This book has highlighted the fact that Hinduism, though religion of antiquity, is not only equality relevant today, but is also fully equipped to face the challenges of the future. Such a perspective can instil bonding, pride and confidence in adherents of this great stream of liberal thought. It can also help others in acquiring an appropriate understanding of this great tradition of universal brotherhood.

The relationship of soul, mind and the body and also of the conscious mind with the sub-conscious mind have been examined scientifically. The concepts of Self, ego, arrogance and pride etc. have been studied in a very logical manner. A chapter has separately been devoted to the web of human relationships. In the end, an attempt has been made to answer some of the frequently asked questions on the various topics related to metaphysics. I would be sending the information on similar lines in respect of the other books in my subsequent mails.
